Foraging behavior in a generalist snake (brown treesnake, Boiga irregularis) with implications for avian reintroduction and recovery
| Contributor(s):: Nafus, Melia G., Xiong, Peter X., Paxton, Eben H., Yackel Adams, Amy A., Goetz, Scott M.
Broad foraging classifications, such as generalist or specialist forager, are generally beneficial for population management in defining expectations of typical behavior. However, better understanding as to how individual variance in behavior interfaces with management actions, such as control of...

Ewes behavioural and physiological reactions to the odour of fox (Lycalopex gymnocercus) and wild boar (Sus scrofa) faeces
| Contributor(s):: Zambra, Noelia, Lacuesta, Lorena, Orihuela, Agustín, Ungerfeld, Rodolfo
Predation of sheep is a production problem that deserves the studies of how this prey species detects and react to predators. In this context, this study determined the behavioural and physiological responses of ewes exposed to the odour of predators’ faeces as fox (Lycalopex gymnocercus)...
Innate preference for native prey and personality implications in captive amur tigers
| Contributor(s):: Wang, Qi, Liu, Dan, Holyoak, Marcel, Jia, Teng, Yang, Shengfan, Liu, Xifeng, Kong, Xuanmin, Jiang, Guangshun
Prey recognition is vital for predation and the survival of carnivores. In theory, carnivores recognize prey by instinct or learning. However, the instinct hypothesis has little support. In addition, it remains unknown if prey recognition capability correlates with personality. Here, we test if...
Cannibalism management of jundiá fry, Rhamdia quelen: Behavior in heterogeneous batches fed on food with different particle sizes
| Contributor(s):: Costenaro-Ferreira, Cristiano, Oliveira, Rodrigo R. B., Oliveira, Paulo L. S., Hartmann, Gustavo J., Hammes, Fernanda B., Pouey, Juvêncio L. O. F., Piedras, Sérgio R. N.
Fish reared in heterogeneous batches and fed on food with a very small particle size can practice cannibalism, because it is energetically more feasible. Jundiá is an omnivorous fish that exhibits heterogeneous growth and high cannibalism rate (CR) in the early stages of its life. Thus, to...

The cry of a "New Born" | Susan Lingle | TEDxUniversityofWinnipeg
| Contributor(s):: Susan Lingle
Mammals know a young creature in need when they hear it. Humans often respond to cries of infants from different species. What about other animals? Are the cries of different species similar enough for parents from one species to respond to the cries of another?Susan Lingle’s research...

Assessing the effectiveness of the Birdsbesafe anti-predation collar cover in reducing predation on wildlife by pet cats in Western Australia
| Contributor(s):: Hall, C. M., Fontaine, J. B., Bryant, K. A., Calver, M. C.
Many pet cats hunt and, irrespective of whether or not this threatens wildlife populations, distressed owners may wish to curtail hunting while allowing their pets to roam. Therefore we evaluated the effectiveness of three patterned designs (simple descriptions being rainbow, red and yellow) of...
Individual hunting behaviour and prey specialisation in the house cat Felis catus: implications for conservation and management
| Contributor(s):: Dickman, C. R., Newsome, T. M.
Predators are often classed as prey specialists if they eat a narrow range of prey types, or as generalists if they hunt multiple prey types. Yet, individual predators often exhibit sex, size, age or personality-related differences in their diets that may alter the impacts of predation on...
Converging on ancient bones: a review of the evidence for the close relatedness of humans ( Homo sapiens) and spotted hyenas ( Crocuta crocuta)
| Contributor(s):: Baynes-Rock, M.
The majority of spotted hyena studies are conducted in places such as national parks and reserves where there are few humans present other than the researchers. I argue that this reflects a perception that "real" hyenas are those largely unaffected by contact with humans. This is at odds with...
More than the kill: hunters' relationships with landscape and prey
| Contributor(s):: Arianne Carvalhedo Reis
Through a discussion of the perceptions of hunters within a New Zealand tourism context, this paper explores how different perspectives of the ‘connection’ between hunter and prey are performed by participants and analysed by scholars using distinct ethical approaches....
Explaining prehistoric variation in the abundance of large prey: a zooarchaeological analysis of deer and rabbit hunting along the Pecho Coast of Central California
| Contributor(s):: Brian F. Codding, Judith F. Porcasi, Terry L. Jones
Three main hypotheses are commonly employed to explain diachronic variation in the relative abundance of remains of large terrestrial herbivores: (1) large prey populations decline as a function of anthro pogenic overexploitation; (2) large prey tends to increase as a result of increasing social...
Consistent individual differences in the behavioural responsiveness of adult male cuttlefish ( Sepia officinalis)
| Contributor(s):: Carere, C., Grignani, G., Bonanni, R., Gala, M. della, Carlini, A., Angeletti, D., Cimmaruta, R., Nascetti, G., Mather, J. A.
Consistent individual differences in clusters of behaviour (animal personalities) are being increasingly recognized by researchers of different disciplines, but studies on invertebrates are still scanty. In order to test for the presence of personality-like individual profiles we assessed the...

Pushed to the limit: food abundance determines tag-induced harm in penguins
| Contributor(s):: Wilson, R. P., Sala, J. E., Gomez-Laich, A., Ciancio, J., Quintana, F.
The energetic costs of animal movement change with body condition, although the consequences of this for foraging efficiency are rarely considered. We deployed externally attached devices to Magellanic penguins ( Spheniscus magellanicus), known to increase the costs of swimming via increased drag...
